can the pinephone be operated with a stylus?

i think it might be nice to operate the pinephone with a stylus, especially if you scale the apps down.

is that supported? what type of stylus would i need to buy to just operate the touch screen?

Depends on the stylus. The touchscreen is capacitive so any stylus designed to work on capacitive touchscreens should work. That usually means having a sufficiently large conductive tip though, so not great for precision. It's not like the active Wacom type stylus, or a resistive touchscreen like we had on the OpenMoko or Psion.
thanks! then i can start looking for a capacitive compatible stylus and see if i like that
